St. Paul’s Church by-the-Lake Episcopal Church is seeking a full-time rector. St. Paul’s is a caring parish family serving the northeast side of the City of Chicago known as Rogers Park and is a neighborhood church seeking to meet the spiritual needs of a diverse community. Our congregation has a global perspective drawn from many places in the Anglican Communion, and we value our Anglo-Catholic tradition that connects us to God with liturgy that enlightens and comforts and music that uplifts our souls. We are a traditional Anglican Church centered on the liturgy found in the Book of Common Prayer, and Sunday services draw members from our diverse backgrounds with a Low Mass and sung High Mass each Sunday. Additionally, there is a Sunday afternoon service offered in the Dinka language for the members of the Sudanese community and Daily Masses each day of the week.
